For many years now, I have been fascinated by the surreal
aspects of Museums of Natural History. 

Inevitably, both their visual language and their history have influenced my work practice.

Since I started my MA at the Royal College of Art, I have been looking more carefully into a particular form of display characteristic of these institutions: the habitat diorama, exploring its magic and its possibilities.

I am particularly interested in the artificial aspects of these man-made enviroments as well as the simultaneity of their narrative where, like in renaissance paintings everything is told at once.
